Yale School of Management Appoints Leading Wall Street Economist as Teacher and Researcher

The Yale School of Management (SOM) this week announced that it has appointed preeminent Wall Street economist Stephen Roach to teach and conduct research beginning July 1, 2010.

Roach, an expert on the global financial system, has been at Morgan Stanley since 1982, most recently as the chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia and before that as the firm’s chief and senior economist.

As part of a joint appointment beginning in July, Roach also will serve as a senior research fellow at Yale University’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs, which was established in April 2009 to provide courses and programs in international affairs to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing careers in diplomatic service or with international agencies or nongovernmental organizations.

At the institute, Roach will teach courses, deliver public lectures and advise students. His will be among the first wave of new course offerings from the Jackson Institute. And at Yale SOM, Roach will teach a course entitled “Washington and Wall Street: Markets, Policy and Politics” with Jeffrey Garten.  

“Stephen Roach brings incomparable experience and expertise to Yale’s teaching programs in global affairs,” Yale President Richard Levin said in a statement. “His appointment underscores the commitment of our new Jackson Institute to combine theory and practice in the training of world leaders for business, government and public service.”

Roach holds a Ph.D. in economics from New York University. The focus of his most recent research has been on globalization, the emergence of China, productivity and the macroeconomic impacts of information technology.
